GenNext Mix N’ Learn: Digital Connection, Social Media and Your Mental Health

Date: Wednesday July 19, 2017
Time: 5:30-7:30 pm
Location:  Innovation Works- Main Floor Commons (201 King Street, London)

Event Details
Join GenNext and our topic experts as we explore the relationship between digital connectedness, social media and mental health.
“In an increasingly digital world and connected world, the very experience of loneliness and isolation are changing. Millennials, compared to their counterparts, read fewer newspapers, fewer magazines and books. They watch significantly less TV. They spend less time physically in the presence of friends and family, and an overwhelming majority say they have no contact with their neighbours. They even walk around less in the physical world. Not exactly surprising stuff. But, that physical isolation may be key to why, just like the rest of us, the most digitally connected generation struggles with disconnection.” -Jon Callegher, George Brown College
